The Electronic Medical Records Systems industry, which designs, develops, implements and supports electronic medical records (EMR) and electronic health records (EHR) systems, has rapidly expanded over the past five years, thanks to federal healthcare legislation. As a result, EHR and EMR have been increasingly adopted across the healthcare sector, reducing the incidence of medical error and making patient health records readily available, bolstering industry revenue. Over the next five years, industry growth is forecast to continue as late EHR adopters hurry to avoid increasing Medicare penalties. However, under a new administration and Congress, the future remains unclear in regards to healthcare reform or repeal. Still, the industry is expected to continue growing to support upgrades and provide maintenance and integration services of existing systems.
This industry provides electronic medical records (EMR) and electronic health records (EHR) services. EMR and EHR systems are digital replacements for traditional paper and file medical records systems used by hospitals, physician practices, urgent care centers and ambulance services. This industry does not include the provision of medical care.
